Seonaid Dunne

The new fourth series of Three 60 is presented by Seonaid Dunne. It is Seonaid's second year presenting Three 60. As a person with an acquired disability herself, she is able to give us an insight into disability that we don't usually see! Her humour has allowed her to overcome many barriers that she has faced since an accident in her home left her without both legs and right hand.

With other amputee friends, she set up Amputee Disability Federation Ireland in 1998 to provide an advice and support network for new and established amputees. She has promoted the rights of people with disabilities actively since then. She currently works in Human Resources in Gandon Enterprises Ltd., the commercial wing of the Rehab Group and the largest employer of people with disabilities in Ireland.

Seonaid has been visible in the public eye appearing on radio and television shows such as The Right Hook, Gerry Ryan and Kenny Live. A graduate of Dublin City University, Seonaid obtained a BA in International Business and Languages, French and Spanish in 2002.
